Description 

This is a relatively small area comprised of a few warm-up problems, a multitude of exotically featured rock for traversing, and the glorious and inspiring wonder that is The Rhino as the center piece.

Some may consider this area to be a "one hit wonder", with The Rhino being the primary -- if not only attraction, but it is none-the-less a must-try for anyone visiting The Pass!

Getting There 

Park your vehicle in The Pass's parking area. Follow the obvious, sandy, man-made path for 15 - 20 min (or 1.6 km) until you arrive at a point where the first permanent stream to cross the hiking path is visible ahead. That very same stream should be flowing parallel to the path at the place where you are standing. From this spot look to your 10 o'clock and there, in the distance, the unmistakable silhouette of The Rhino is visible. That feature and beyond constitutes the Rhino Boulders area.

This is it. Arguably one of the most aesthetically interesting boulders (if you can even call it that) in all of Rocklands, and perhaps even the world. The Rhino, with its mixture of dark grey-black and occasionally visible orange rock, will capture the imagination of all who visit. And visit it you must, even if you have no intention of climbing. It really is that interesting to behold; a true marvel of time and geological processes. In a fashion reminiscent of climbing the kitchen co...[more]   Browse More Classics in International
